Executives see a strong cyber security culture as an essential element of cyber risk management success.
(ISC)2’s study Building a Resilient Cyber Security Culture lists some of the practices and attributes essential for solid cyber security. Their key findings include:
Support from the board and top leaders is essential for the process to work.
A strong risk management policy is essential. Without strong policies and performance baselines it is impossible to establish a repeatable process.
Clarity about security as it applied across jobs. Clearly delineated job descriptions help impart an understanding of security to applicants and employees.
A focus on training and certification. It may well be that qualified, trained people promote a resilient cyber security culture, and equally that a resilient cyber security culture attracts qualified, trained people.
An established CISO role. Some businesses operate without a CISO but having an executive in charge of cyber security seems to be essential.
User security awareness training. The weakest cyber security link in the average business is the user. Educated users are critical in creating cyber security best practices.
Long-tenured security teams. With headhunters on the prowl and job offers always on the table as the result of skill shortage, keeping quality people can be a challenge, but the people carry the culture.
We've often noted that organizations with a strong security culture own the challenge of security. Such organizations build, sustain, and reinforce their security culture through tailored, interactive training. Security Boulevard has the story:
What your Employees Know About Cybersecurity A majority of internet users can answer fewer than half the questions correctly on a difficult knowledge quiz about cybersecurity issues and concepts Ransomware, Phishing, Exploits. In an increasingly digital world, an individual’s personal data can be as valuable – and as vulnerable – to potential wrongdoers as any other possession. Despite the risk-reducing impact of good cybersecurity habits and the prevalence of cyberattacks on institutions and individuals alike, a Pew Research Center survey finds that many Americans are unclear about some key cybersecurity topics, terms and concepts. A majority of online adults can identify a strong password when they see one and recognize the dangers of using public Wi-Fi. However, many struggle with more technical cybersecurity concepts, such as how to identify true two-factor authentication or determine if a webpage they are using is encrypted. Take The Quiz
